BENEDICTUM – Obey (2013) | Album / EP Reviews @ Metal Forces Magazine

BENEDICTUMObey Frontiers (2013)Rating: 5/10 Benedictum, the Californian metallers fronted by the Amazonian Veronica Freeman, return with Obey. While Benedictum may have started out as a hard rock act, they have quickly evolved into a much heavier act. Obey is certainly their heaviest album to date, but I’d be lying if I said that was a […]

ANGELICAThrive Frontiers (2013)Rating: 8/10 The Murder Of My Sweet frontwoman Angelica Rylin expands her repertoire with Thrive, her debut album as a solo artist. Citing influences such as Robin Beck and Ann Wilson, Swedish singer Angelica embraces her AOR side here, allowing her voice to soar and roar through the album’s 12 tracks. The album […]

BLOODGOOD – Dangerously Close (2013) | Album / EP Reviews @ Metal Forces Magazine

BLOODGOODDangerously Close Doolittle Group (2013)Rating: 8/10 Has it really been 22 years since Christian rockers Bloodgood graced our ears? I’ve always found the “Christian metal” tag irrelevant because so many good 80s bands were mocked for their anti-satanic beliefs, which was kind of daft considering most of the bands who were “pro” Satan were just […]

SWITCHBLADE – Heavy Weapons (2013) | Album / EP Reviews @ Metal Forces Magazine

SWITCHBLADEHeavy Weapons Killer Metal (2013)Rating: 5/10 Israeli heavy metal doesn’t come any more Iron Maiden-influenced than Switchblade. This four-piece began life back in Haifa in 2005 and despite a batch of demos and singles it’s taken them eight years to put out their debut full-length album, Heavy Weapons. Switchblade consist of vocalist Lior “Steinmetal” Stein, […]

MORTAL DECAY – The Blueprint For Blood Spatter (2013) | Album / EP Reviews @ Metal Forces Magazine

MORTAL DECAYThe Blueprint For Blood Spatter Comatose Music (2013)Rating: 8/10 American death metallers Mortal Decay (not to be confused with the German one album wonders from the late 90s) formed back in 1991 but have been rather sporadic with their releases with only one album, 1997’s Sickening Erotic Fanaticism, merging in that decade. However, since […]

ARTILLERY – Legions (2013) | Album / EP Reviews @ Metal Forces Magazine

ARTILLERYLegions Metal Blade (2013)Rating: 8.5/10 When it comes to cult thrash, Danish maniacs Artillery are one of those underground bands that every self-respecting thrash metal fan should know about. Forget the countless new and upcoming bands attempting to bring back the 80s, because for all the good fun the new breed may offer the likes […]

DEICIDE – In The Minds Of Evil (2013) | Album / EP Reviews @ Metal Forces Magazine

DEICIDEIn The Minds Of Evil Century Media (2013)Rating: 7/10 I think it’s fair to say that Florida’s kings of evil, Deicide, have never recaptured the true spirit of those first two albums; 1990’s self-titled debut and its follow up from 1992, Legion. There was something so controversial about these Tampa maniacs, mostly in the opinions […]

BAT – Primitive Age EP (2013) | Album / EP Reviews @ Metal Forces Magazine

BATPrimitive Age EP Tankcrimes (2013)Rating: 8/10 It’s been said you can never go home again, and in some ways that’s true. There are a lot of musical projects that intend to recapture the spirit of glory days of the players involved. If that was the intention of the guys in Bat, they not only hit […]
